Rare display of Shroud of Turin scheduled

The Turin Shroud will be displayed in public for the first time in ten years, coinciding with a new series of scientific tests. The Shroud has only been displayed five times in the past century.

Professor Christopher Ramsey, the head of Oxford University’s Radiocarbon Accelerator, ran tests on the Shroud 20 years ago and will update his research using new techniques. Experts believe that "the presence of carbon monoxide in the material [during the first test] could have given a misleading result."
